I don´t know if "San Franciscan Nights" by The Animals is already mentioned... just in case...

This following program is dedicated to the city and people of

San Franciscan, who may not know it but they are beautiful and so

is their city this is a very personal song, so if the viewer

cannot understand it particularly those of you who are European

residents save up all your brand and fly trans love airways to

San Franciscan U.S.A., then maybe you'll understand the song, it

will be worth it, if not for the sake of this song but for the

sake of your own peace of mind.

This is my post from the other thread. I meant to put it here but I forgot where I was ... :)

Patti Smith does a lot of spoken word, for eg. in Wave, Horses, and Piss Factory, which she recites more than sings. And the beginning of Birdland ...

His father died and left him a little farm in New England.

All the long black funeral cars left the scene

And the boy was just standing there alone

Looking at the shiny red tractor

Him and his daddy used to sit inside

And circle the blue fields and grease the night.

It was as if someone had spread butter on all the fine points of the stars

cause when he looked up they started to slip.

Then he put his head in the crux of his arm

And he started to drift ...

Spreading the Diesease - Queensrÿche - Operation : Mindcrime

Religion and sex are powerplays

Manipulate the people for the money they pay

Selling skin, selling god

The numbers look the same on their credit cards

Politicians say no to drugs

While we pay for wars in south america

[saudi arabia, on tour]

Fighting fire with empty words

While the banks get fat

And the poor stay poor

And the rich get rich

And the cops get paid

To look away

As the one percent rules america
